Virtual /Cartoon Bands through history THE BEAGLES


The Beagles were an animated cartoon television series that aired on on American TV Network CBS from September 10, 1966 to September 2, 1967 and later in reruns from September 9, 1967 to September 2, 1968
It was made by the same studio that made King Leonardo and Underdog.

Although they were cancelled from CBS after a year or two, they lasted long enough to release an album, "Here Come The Beagles."

Though they were implied to be like the Beatles regardless that they were a duo and played acoustic instruments the Beagles were more Middle of the road pop.

Both members of The Beagles were dogs. Stringer (voiced by Mort Marshall impersonating Dean Martin), the tall one played guitar, while Tubby (voiced by Allen Swift impersonating Jerry Lewis), short, fat and wearing spectacles played stand-up bass (like Athol Guy from the Seekers) . They often got into trouble as the result of publicity stunts planned by their manager, a Scottish terrier named Scotty (also voiced by Swift).
